Good prices good food usually a lot of kids on the weekends so it maybe a little noisy. Nothing unusual about their menu if you've seen several breakfast menus from other restaurants you have seen whats on their menu.

My family and I dined for breakfast. I found the menu items to be a bit unusual. I ordered eggs, toast and turkey sausage links. The sausage arrived cold! The flavor was the strangest ever, not even palatable. My husband even tried it and had to spit it out. Service also wasn't very great. Very slow for the waitress to... More

Nice large menu with daily specials makes it hard to decide! Breakfast and lunch are consistently good. Dependable place to take company.

A true Florida BUBBA BAR with ok pub food. Not a spot I would put on my must go list but a good stop for local color. Not the cleanest place I have ever been to.

First of all you are greeted at the opened door. Seating is quick except on busy Sunday or Holidays. The servers are great food has always arrived as ordered. Food is very tasty. My favorite is the Cinnebon pancake. It is seasonal so need to take advantage when it is on the menu. Pumpkin pancakes are good in the fall.... More

My family and I love going to breakfast here. But, be sure to get there before the rush on Sunday's or you could have a wait. The food and ingredients are high quality and they have a great variety and very good kid's options. They are very professional and friendly and it is a very clean restaurant.

This restaurant has a delicious selection of food. I recently visited and had shrimp and grits. It had so many great flavors. The atmosphere was very nice and their unique coffee was delicious.

I gave this place several tries over the past year - year and a half! Now I only return if the people I am with want to go. I find the food and the menu boring and bland. Everything is cooked correctly, it just is under seasoned. There are several other breakfast / lunch places along Cortez Road that are... More
